Creation and Salvation Poems, p.6Ron wayne
“After you arrived did you feel better as you experienced Heaven?”
“I did and I realized that God had forgiven me of my sins!”
I could tell Enoch was a good man that feared and loved God and understood why God took him to heaven. I think that God was sending a message to all of us that if we fear God and love him then there is hope. Especially since his Son Jesus came to Earth to offer the free gift of salvation. I had another question to ask Enoch that had bothered me since I was saved. “There were thousands of mankind killed during the great flood and it grieved me that so many died and were separated from God. And in the life after the flood so many have died that wouldn`t be going to heaven. Does God grieve the lost that comes with rejecting him?” I asked hoping that Enoch might shed some light on my question.
“I Think I can answer that by talking about his Son, Jesus, who wept many times while he was walking on Earth. When Jesus gathered with the sisters and others mourning Lazarus`s death he wept from the weeping and wailing of Mary, Martha, and others even though he knew he would raise him in from the dead. Surely the compassion that God has for all sinners was expressed here.”
“True, even Jesus knew that he would resurrect Lazarus to life he still wept for the mourners.” I said as I began to see the compassion of the creator.
“When Jesus visited Jerusalem the last time before he was crucified by his people he wept at the future destruction of Jerusalem and that a stone would not be left upon another and many will be killed by the surrounding enemies.” Enoch said as a tear ran down his cheek.
God does mourn over those that reject him and he cares for each and every one of his creation, I thought. Enoch is truly a man after God`s heart and I`m excited to visit others that were written about in the Bible. I had to visit Paul and ask him questions about some tough doctrines in the word of God.
Ch.7 The Apostle Paul
I know that Paul had written thirteen of the twenty seven books of the New Testament. He was a Pharisee leader of the Jewish people and he was commissioned to find and imprison or execute any Jew who had confessed Jesus Christ as the messiah. He was then known as Saul of Tarsus and he searched out these followers of Jesus with a vengeance.
But then on the road to Damascus Paul had a miraculous conversion and it changed the course of history forever. I finally found Paul walking along a meadow and the two of us engaged in conversation.
“Paul, can you describe your conversion that day over two thousand years ago on the road to Damascus?” I said, waiting eagerly to hear his response.
“It was a miraculous event sent to me to become a disciple that I would preach the salvation of God through his son Jesus Christ. A light surrounded me and my entourage that lit up with a bright glow that brought me to my knees. Then I heard a voice say to me; Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? Who are you, lord? I asked. I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting, he replied. Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what to do”. Paul said as he told of his life changing encounter with Jesus Christ.
“As a gentile I thank the Lord that he changed your life, for your writing inspired by the Holy Spirit enabled millions of gentiles to be grafted in to the grace and mercy of God!” I said and I felt humbled as I spoke with the apostle that called called the father of the gentiles. I have always
humbled as I spoke with the apostle that has been called the father of the gentiles. I have always marveled at why God chose certain people to write his holy words.
“Why do you think God chose you to be an apostle?” I asked with reverence to Paul. “That’s a humbling question and 1`m not sure I can really answer with any degree of finality. The reason being no one can know the mind of God for he only can answer for his reasons.” Paul said.
“This brings up the doctrine of predestination which causes some dissension with many.” I said waiting to hear Paul’s response.
“Predestination simple means that God knows that a person will accept his grace and mercy through is only begotten Son and will be conformed to the likeness of his Son.”
“But doesn`t contradict free choice which God ordained for his creation”
“No, God knows the heart of every man and woman therefore he knows who will accept his grace even before that person is born. Just because knows this it doesn`t nullify the freedom of choice. Remember he is our creator and he will work out his will through his creation!”
I had to digest this thought and think about what Paul was saying. Romans 8: 28 says for whom he did foreknow he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. The fact that God knows beforehand who is going to be saved and who isn`t going to be saved doesn`t determine who is going to be saved and who isn`t. God knows all things or he wouldn`t be God. God knew that his creation would fall into sin and that some would have the spirit to seek him and these would be the ones predestined. Since God knew this he formulated his plan and his outcome is predetermined.
My next apostle I wanted to visit is John.
CH. 8 The Apostle John
The first chapter I read as a new believer was 1st John in the New Testament. He was the last apostle and he wrote the last book of the Bible, Revelation. I found John and we talked.
John, you`re one of the apostles that I dreamed about talking to before the Lord took up into the air!” I said as I hugged him in my joy.
“It`s been heartwarming to see all the believers enter into fellowship here with our Lord. How can I help you?” John said with love and brotherhood jumping from his eyes.
“When you wrote 1st. John how did you write such an edifying book about our Lord Jesus Christ?”
“The inspiration and words came from the Holy Spirit. I was merely a tool of the spirit and as I wrote my pen was moved by the hand of God.”
“That`s exactly what 2 Timothy 3: 16 tells, that all scripture is inspired by God. When you wrote the book of Revelation you had a vision when you were imprisoned on the island of Patmos. Tell me about that if you will?”
“Theses visions were given to me to show the things which must come to pass. It was the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. The book reveals the end of one world and the beginning of the next.”
“But who was the message intended for?” I asked.
“The Revelation is intended for the Jews and for Jerusalem in particular.” John said. “The believing church or the gentiles aren’t mentioned after chapter four which indicates the restrainer is removed. Now God is fulfilling the promises he made to Abraham.”
“Your right the last week of the prophecy or the time of Jacobs’s trouble is the seven years of the tribulation! God has removed his believers and the Tribulation will be the time he will restore a remnant of his chosen people.”
“But the restrainer has been removed, how does that work?”
“144,000 selected Jews will be selected and not be affected by the Tribulation or can Satan’s demons have any effect on them. They will evangelize many during the seven year period.”
“Have any prophesies been fulfilled since the rapture of the believers or church?”
“Yes, Damascus, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and part of northern Israel have been ravaged by war since the Rapture.” John said.
“How did this happen?” I asked thinking about Psalm 23 and Isaiah 17 prophecies for the end of days. “The United States of America suffered an economic meltdown due to its debt and subsequently couldn`t be of any significance in the crisis in the Middle East. Israel’s border neighbors saw this as an opportunity to attack Israel and wipe the nation off the map. Israel responded and literally defeated the attack. Damascus was literally destroyed and was reduced to a heap of ruins, fulfilling Isaiah prophecy chapter 17: 1-3.”
“What about the Ezekiel 38 and 39 prophecies” I said.
“The Russian coalition which inclu
“Now, the stage is set for the Anti Christ to appear!”
CH. 9 Deep Thought
I left John and I needed to think over all that has happened since I walked on the cloud. Many things have happened to me since God has taken me up in the cloud. I met my loved ones and friends that were saved after I was taken up in the air.
The appearance of my savior was exciting and glorious. To see the throne of God in its entire splendor took my breath away. Meeting my ancestors that were in my past was exhilarating and stimulating. Then my talks with some of the people in the Bible were an eye opener in our talks. Their feelings and reactions to the will of God were based on their love for the creator.
The beauty and wonderment of Heaven is beyond my imagination and comprehension. The animals even were changed to reflect the love and caring that is the character of God. No more aggression or the law of survival among animals was needed. All creatures here no longer depended on the eating of other animals for their survival.
My new body in the likeness of Jesus is amazing. To be young and vibrant forever is a peaceful and comforting thought. The internal spirit is void if sin and is replaced with love and caring for others. My mind is now enhanced and my intellectual capabilities are increased well beyond the mind I had while on Earth. I pray with all that I am that those remaining on Earth going through the Tribulation will find Christ and receive the hope of their salvation through him.
I sat down and leaned against a tree and wrote some poems that flowed from my heart.
What is Heaven
What is heaven I speculate,
what is there for me to contemplate.
The Bible gives me a glance,
a sneak preview in advance.
The opposite is hell,
there I don`t want to dwell.
God tells me with him I will live,
for eternity which he will give.
The entrance is free and offered,
to accept is not awkward.
His place will be with a blessing,
we won`t have to be a guessing.
There we will live forever,
If we say yes we will be clever.
Mansions will be made,
for us because the price has been paid.
All we have to do,
Is say yes to his Son who knew.
He paid for our sins on the cross,
he knew we were at a loss.
Don`t put it off,
don`t reject it or scoff.
Join in the celebration,
be a part of your new graduation.
It is Finished
These words have a powerful message,
forever with an astounding vestige.
He said this from his torment,
for to us he did vent.
He came because of his love,
sent to us from above.
He wants all to believe,
and not to grieve.
He died to send these words,
so that they could be heard.
He will return one day,
And take us with him to stay.
We will meet him in the clouds,
and he will wear a kings shroud.
We will see him as he is,
with all his glory we will be his.
When he return to earth at the end of the tribulation,
we will be with him with exaltation.
You can join us in this event,
If you accept his sacrifice he did spent.
At our worst
God know our worst,
he realizes our thirst.
We are born into rebellion
capable of being a hellion.
We start with the idea to be selfish,
if not controlled we can be hellish.
As we age we see the result,
we find our lives can be an insult.
Then someone tells about God,
we consider it and become thawed.
We begin to read in the Bible,
that if we don`t change we will become liable.
But how can we change this course,
as we read the word of God we found the source.
Then we find the way of escape,
Gods Son our life he can reshape.
Even though we were born into sin,
believe in Jesus and be born again.
Don`t be Deceived
There are many who would lead you astray,
be watch full keep them at bay.
They will take the form of godliness,
but deny it`s holy righteousness.
They will say do good works,
and you will get perks.
If you avoid sin and do good,
you can attain Heaven it`s understood.
This is not the gospel given,
from our Lord you will be driven.
The gate to eternal life with God is not wide,
you need to repent and lose your pride.
Then accept the gift from Jesus Christ our savior,
it`s free and will change your behavior.
Jesus loves us at our worst,
he will fill your yearning thirst.
If anyone says you need more than this,
they will be wrong and terribly amiss.
A Thousand Years
A thousand years for Christ to reign,
and peace and love will he gain.
We that believe will be with him,
and fill our hearts to the brim.
Those that lived during the time of the scourge,
into these years will they merge.
The rule of Satan will be diminished,
he will be locked up and be finished.
Peace and love will abound,
sin and death will not be found.
We will be there to assist,
this you don`t want to miss.
The Earth and animal will be changed,
everything will be rearranged.
We have our eternal bodies and spirits,
we will be bold, loving, and fearless.
At the end Satan will be let loose,
to deceive again with abuse.
But he won`t last long,
It will be his last song.
Then God will create a new heaven and Earth,
then we will in eternity be in this new birth.
The Thousand Years
After the Tribulation comes a new situation,
Jesus now resides on Earth and sin is in cessation.
We now are under his reign,
and we all will rejoice at this gain.
From Jerusalem he will sit,
spreading his love every bit.
Creation will shout with joy,
no longer will Satan annoy.
His chosen will glorified,
the promises magnified.
His church will be there too,
this from prophecy they knew.
This time for I can`t wait,
for it be joyful and great.
This a teaching from God,
it`s a way to keep us from being flawed.
The heart of pride can strike us down,
strike us defeat us and we can drown.
Our suffering can keep us humble,
but God’s grace will support us as we stumble.
A thorn in the flesh is sent to the proud,
to humble us to keep us cowed.
In grace this thorn is sent,
to humble and this pride is bent.
In this humility you are drawn,
to God and a new dawn.
For in weakness your spirit is lifted,<
then by Gods grace are you gifted.
God loves you and despises pride,
with humility the pride will no longer abide.
Gods grace is sufficient for the suffering,
his love will be the buffering.
After the 1000 year millennium,
there will be a larger compendium.
Satan will be let loose for a while,
he will rage and seek and be vile.
Then the Lord with his mighty power,
will speak and Satan he will he devour.
He will cast him and his demons forever,
into the lake of fire and his activities he will sever.
Then God will create a new,
A new heaven and Earth we will view.
Then for eternity,
we will be with God with no adversity.
Forever the wonders we will see and be,
with our creator forever you agree.
The time is near for the end of this age,
Then God will start a new page.
